In this storry Mr. White wants a paw from a monkey a general has thrown in the fire. The general warned him if he had the paw he needed to make wise wishes. So Mr.White takes the paw out of the fire and makes his first two wishes. After his first two weird things started happening so he used his last wish to bring everything back to normal.
the conflict in monkeys paw was the fact that Mr.White made foolish wishes that the grneral had warned him not to do.
Mr.White qualities- stuck up, didnt want to listen to the general that crearly explained to make wise wishes.
